Gianni and Joe are the men behind the Taste of The Times Videos at the Gloucester Daily Times Website- this is from them-

This is the third of three parts of the original footage. The entire shoot lasted over 45 minutes, which was edited down to a 10 minute video. (You can see that video at http://food.gloucestertimes.com/video/Baccala-Italian-Style-Codfish.html) Some have asked to see the entire production, with little or no editing. Here is Part 3.

Julie Geary’s Fool-Proof Turkey Video

You may only cook a turkey one day a year but Julie Geary shows that it is actually easy to make a perfectly cooked bird, brown on the outside and fully cooked and moist on the inside. Her secret is the technique of using butter, lots of it, and coat the entire surface of the outside of the turkey. Cover completely with aluminum foil and cook the turkey, covered with the aluminum foil, up until the last half hour. Remove the foil and the turkey will be white, but after about ½ hour more in the oven (without the foil) the skin will brown perfectly. For some added flavor, Julie also shows you how to place some fresh herbs (such as sage, thyme or parsley) under the skin before cooking. She also has a video to show how to make perfect gravy and another for an easy, basic stuffing recipe.

Joey’s Cape Ann Media Moguls Meeting at Pleasant Street Tea Co. – Video

Meet the Media Exchanging ideas to serve the community.

Last week I had an idea to try to get a bunch of my media buddies together for an impromptu coffee meet up at Pleasant Street Tea and Coffee Company. Those of you who have been following the blog closely may have noticed many posts coming from the space at Pleasant Street. This is not a slight to Gloucester’s other coffee shops like Lone Gull and Cape Ann Coffee which I love and feel play a huge role in the fabric of a community. Pleasant Street happens to have that nice back room which is conducive to meetings and taping interviews so that’s where I’ve been because the dock is just too crazy this time of year to try to tape any segments.

Anyway what I thought would end up as a meeting between four or five of us turned into something much bigger as 90% of my media rolodex showed up.
The idea behind the meet-up was to introduce many people that may have only contacted each other through emails or telephone for a meeting where everyone could share ideas and explore opportunities to help each other and themselves. With the planning and help of Johhny McElhenny and Heather Fraelick we held what I believe to be the first of it’s kind cross media meeting between such a diverse group of Cape Media moguls.

We had the newspaper Editors from The Gloucester Times and Cape Ann Beacon Ray Lamont and Jane Enos. We had Cape Ann TV’s new executive director Donna Gacek. We had international TV producing media giants Gianni and Terry Gallo along with Joe Langhan. Peter Van Ness- Producer and local web genius. Andrea Holbrook- Night editor at The Times. Terry Weber- freelance writer who will soon be releasing her adventure blog to the world. Local PR gurus Heather Fraelick, John McElhenny and Kate Moran. Hybrid Advertising executive Jon Cahill from Bait and Tackle. Local bloggers and writers Heather Atwood, Billy O’Connor and Laura Ciampa, Manny Simoes and your boy Joey of course.

I know I made several connections and came away with some exciting cross promotional opportunities that we will be pursuing to make GMG even better and I’m sure there were other connections that were made in that room.
We are planning to meet monthly but the next one will be at Cape Ann Brewing and in the evening so we can spend more time and have more space.

Here’s a video that Manny put together-

Sister Felicia Taping Rosa Rugosa Hip Jelly Segment For Gloucester Times Taste Of The Times

Heather Atwood and Lenny Linquata Tape The 100th Episode Of The Gloucester Daily Times Taste of The Times

Last night The Gloucester Daily Times held it’s 100th taping of it’s Taste of The Times Food Show at Cruiseport Gloucester.  My buddy and new GMG contributor Joe Langhan asked me to go and I didn’t know if I would be able to make it but my sister Felicia was going to be there and things just happened to fall into place to allow me to make it.  I expected there to be about 30-40 people there but when I pulled up there was a capacity crowd of about 250. 

 

It was a great night for several reasons- I got to meet a lot of the people from the Times that I email with often but never had met face to face along with many friends and fans of the blog that I’d never met in person.  There was a ton of food there.  I mean a TON but even though I hadn’t eaten beforehand I only sampled a few excellent pieces of sushi from Lat 43 and a small cup of the new Folly Cove rum from Ryan and Wood Distillery. I was starving but meeting new people will always trump hunger.  Making friends to me is what life is all about.

Julie Geary’s Lamb Shank Video

Since Julie Geary has been in the catering business that her mother started out of their home in Magnolia she has learned many tricks and techniques for getting the most flavor from her food – and when she wants to the most bang for the buck. She loves to share that knowledge with people and does so here with this delicious recipe for cooking a lamb shank that is so tender the meat will fall off of the bone. The secret is to braise, cook in the proper liquids and slowly simmer on the stove or in the oven for a few hours. It is a good recipe for a long, cold, rainy afternoon. Watch her do it here.

Gallo Productions and Joe Langhan

Yesterday morning we banged out three interview style short videos at Gallo Productions located at 11 Center St. 

The team of Joe Langhan who was involved with starting the Food Network and Gianni Gallo who owns and operates Gallo Productions are producing serious video in house.  I never knew it existed at this location and I certainly had no idea of the scope of Gianni’s work which takes him all over the world. 

There are no signs on the building to tell you what is going on in there.  Hell even my third guest Jonathan Pope- co-president of the Gloucester Fishermen Athletic Association couldn’t find it even after walking up and down the street for a good while.

Once you enter the doors and see the production facility and how professional the whole set up is you would be proud to have these types of pros part of the working culture of our City.   These aren’t hacks like me, this is an internnational media business and it is based right out of our City of Gloucester.

I want to reiterate something so that it sinks in in case I didn’t drive it home the first time.  Today’s technology means that this type of production facility and these types of talented media magnates such as Gianni Gallo and Joe Langhan do not need to locate here.  They can broadcast Hi Definition television from Boston, New York, LA- wherever they chose.  The content that Gianni films is all over the world.

But they chose to work here.  In Gloucester.  That should tell you something.  This is a great place we have here my friends.

Sister Felicia Debuts her Sicilian Cooking On The Gloucester Times Website

Joe Langhan and Gianni Gallo produced the cooking show for the Gloucester Times Taste of The Times series.  It also includes the Homebrew show and many other recipe on demand episodes.
